An alternative rock single that will knock you off your feet.
Charleston, South Carolina-based musical creative, Chris Holly, is an indie-rock singer, songwriter, and wanderlust guitarist. In his music career, Holly has shared the stage with big names like Slayer, Pantera, Toadies, Hootie and the Blowfish, Billy Joe Shaver, and Darius Rucker. He was also a member of the metal band OMEN, a group that did extensive touring throughout North America. Nowadays, the artist’s unmistakable talents continue to shine as a solo musician. His sound is one thing that you can never predict; what starts out soft turns into metal, and what starts out as hard rock eventually becomes gentle. His discography is available on Spotify, his producer’s YouTube, and his own website. Chris Holly’s latest drop is the rock single “War Paint.” The song also has an accompanying music video.
While it starts off with a gentle and almost-soothing guitar backdrop, “War Paint” soon builds up into a high-energy instrumental explosion. The whole message reflects an intense and extensive piece that flashes us back to hard rock. It’s all about being a soldier in a battle you ultimately are left alone in. Lyrics like “I fell for the promise, Lost myself, Deserted me, A lone soldier left behind” and “The inspiration of desperation, do or die, sink or swim, Worth fight for Your legacy? You leave behind me” are powerfully delivered with plenty of passion. Whether it’s a physical or a mental battle, we’ll never be quite sure. By fusing together elements of folk rock and thrash metal, Holly is sure to please fans of alternative rock. So, press play below and get ready to put on your “War Paint.”
